This is songs very special & personal to me. My purpose for writing this song was not to insist that my childhood was in anyway a sad one... I was and am very blessed to have such a great family that loves and supports my every move. We all go through things, some of those things are not pretty, but we get through it & hopefully come out a better person because of it. This is just a small piece of my story... thank you for taking the time to check it out.
I.S.S.w • Special Re-Release
I.S.S.W stands for "I Sample So What" which was the title of my long time friend & producer Firzt Born's debut instrumental album back in 2013. It was only right I pick 13 beats from it & make "The Man-u-iLL Edition". This album marks the first time me & Firzt did a whole project together. Since then I've put out a few projects, including the Firzt Born produced EP "Bandana Manny" "Bandana Manny 2" is up next.
This re-release of ISSW contains 2 NEW tracks, "Time To Go" ft Emilio Rojas & "Goodbye"
I chose to do a little something with the track-list... Rather then just list them regularly I made it a short story. The titles are highlighted in red...
THE MAN BEHIND THE MUSIC
Man-u-iLL is like a breath of fresh air in a world of pollution, honesty in an industry of lies, sincerity and passion in an art form that seems to have lost its purpose, direction, and impact. "My music is a reflection of me, my thoughts, my views, my feelings, it's in touch with reality and I connect with my fans personal level.
This is the original episode of Behind The Unsigned, a digital documentary series that started out on my mother's stoop. My long time friend & creator, O. Williams took what started out as an idea & brought it to life. Capturing the personality and personal struggles of up and coming artist as they chase their dream.
Last Few projects
2016 will forever be a unforgettable year for Man-u-iLL, from running his business full-time (iLL iNK Graphic Printing Studio) to chasing his dreams of being placed among Hip Hop's elite.
Man-u-iLL released 3 projects in 2016...
In Sept. of 2016 Man-u-iLL lost his cousin
Junito to a police chase that eneded up in a
fatal accident... just a month later he
was blessed with the birth of his beautiful baby
girl Melody. Both these life changing events
have inspired & motivated him to stay
focused & push harder.
